I have create a standard Bioconductor package from John Storey's q-value
code.   It is available at


This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values. The q-value of a
test measures the proportion of false positives incurred (called the false
discovery rate) when that particular test is called significant. A short
tutorial on q-values and false discovery rates is provided with the manual.
Various plots are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible
significance cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown
on the conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.
